Last Sunday the husband, the in-laws, and myself went to the theater to see Blindside.
The back story to the movie: a very large young man was basically an orphan and was pretty much homeless. A very rich family ended up adopting him. He became an incredible football player. That's it in a very small nutshell.
The movie was VERY good. It is definitely a must-see. It is very much a feel good story. The actors and actresses (Sandra Bullock!!) were great choices for each roll. I don't think they could have picked better people to play in the movie.
There was a book written based on this story. I am very interested in picking up a copy of the book and getting more details.
Again, I recommend everyone see the movie. 50% of the people in my party cried so it might be a good movie to get on DVD when it comes out. And I will let it be known that I was not one of the four of us who shed a tear during the movie. I am not sure how that is possible because I cry very easily when it comes to movies.
Have you seen this movie? What did you think? Have you read the book?
